Dance Gumbo Retired * RIP
We started Dance Gumbo back in the 90s and it was a haven for the cross dancers that liked some salsa in their swing, little bit of this and that.
At its height I remember some of the great times and fun dancers.
I want to thank everybody a lot, Sandra for all the pineapple chopped and time trying out this West Coast and that Salsa. The regular sweethearts in the early years, such incredible dancers and nice people- Cindy, Carrie, Debbie, Laura, Maria, Becky, Gail, many more - too numerous to count and always a pleasure to dance with, and the gents who I didn't get to dance with but tripped the night fantastic- Jim, Lew, Bruce, Daniel, James S. In recent years we lost so many people and it was a smaller but dedicated crowd, but I see no point in hanging on if the crowd is not coming out.
Special thanks to Papa Jim for making Triangle Dance Studio the epicenter of our dance beings. Sometimes I leave the house going to Food Lion and just by force of habit end up driving to Triangle Dance Studio.
I am not retiring from dancing, by any means, and have more garbanzos on my plate than I can manage. The Salsa is going strong with the Sunday Socials and the new Second Saturday Baile Chapel Hill * Carrboro. Plans are afoot for an Improv Dance combining Ecstatic, Tango Fusion, Blues Fusion, Worldbeat, so stay tuned and Bon Temps.
